Wondering what everyone likes to use as an archive solution for Exchange 2007.

I've looked at GFI and Symantec, any others I should be looking at?

This is for a twenty person company and we want something on premise as they want to maintain control of the data.   client are all Outlook, but a mix of 2003, 2007, 2010, and 2013 (2003 to go very soon).

Thoughts?

GFI Mail Archiver is my usual tool of choice here, although it very much depends what the actual objective is.

For example, if you just want to reduce the size of the mailboxes, then you could easily create another database in Exchange (2007 allows four plus public folders) then create Archive mailboxes in that database and move content around. The primary account would need permissions to the secondary, but it wouldn't require any more CALs.

However if you need to keep a journal, because you are in a regulated industry, then something like GFI is the best option as it keeps it separate in a way that the end user cannot manipulate.
